dba TVIND; aka SCHOOL CORPORATION TVIND 
FRAUD/FOREIGN POLICE COOPERATION 

Synopsis: The | I are inve stigating captioned subjects 

for defrauding tne out of $10 Million and are 

requesting FBI assistance in investigating captioned 
organization. 



Details: On June 14, 2001, Legat 


met witl 


concerning the activities of TVIND. 

Tvind is a loosely structured collection of 

organizations established in Denmark by I I in 

1967. It was structured as non-profit charitable organizations 
which derived income from two sources. 

First, TVIND established alternative independent 
schools in Denmark. Teachers who shared the left wing ideology 
of TVIND we re recruited from all over Scandinavia. The 1 

I paid a substantial portion of the salary expenses, as 
well as, heavily subsidized rent and other expenses. These 
subsidies amounted to approximately 100 Million Krones ($12 
Million dollars) per year. All teachers were required by TVIND 
to donate their salaries to a TVIND Trust Fund. This trust was 
to benefit charities and scientific research in third world 
countries, principally Africa. In fact the money was laundered 
out of the Trust by paying high salaries to TVIND teachers in 



Investigative Services From: 
163H-CH-156, 06/18/2001 


Africa and else where who in turn sent the money to a bank in 
Switzerland. Every year about $ 2.5 Million is sent from this 
bank in Switzerland to a bank in the Cayman Islands owned solely 
by TVIND. 

Secondly, TVIND derives income from the creation of 
Developmental Aid Organizations. Money is raised by the 
collection of used clothes. The clothes are recycled and sold in 
third world countries . The proceeds are sent to charitable trust 
funds established in Off Shore tax havens. 

A number of these groups are operating in the United 
States. They include: UFF, Development Aid from People to 
People, Humana People to People, Institute of International 
Cooperation and Development, and Planet Aid. Humana People To 
People runs 152 projects in 26 countries in Europe, Asia, United 
States, and Africa. In each of these organizations the funds are 
ultimately controlled by captioned subjects who divert the money 
for personal use. Little, to no money goes to the charities. 

Planet Aid’s head office in the United States is 
located in Massachusetts. It also does business in Pennsylvania, 
Washington DC, New York, California, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, 
Connecticut and Delaware. 


TVIND and the charitable organizations it oversees 
operate in most countries of the world. The Charities commission 
in England recently inv estigated TVIND activities and expelled 
them fr om England. The | advise d that the

and left messages on Email with 


who works 

in OIA offices concerning your requests for bank records but so far I have not 


been able to contact anyone. 


These are 


Jno.s and I would suggest that you start trying to contact him directly at phone 
and by fax 001-202-514-0080. My fear is that the facts that you famished 


wil l not suppo rt a search warrant for bank records. Normally , you must show by probable cause 
thal I is engaged in illegal a ctivity and that he uses that particular bank and account and 


that the account holds illegal mone q I could send you copies of past warrants as a guide and 
might also be able to give you a name of an Assistant United States Attorney in Miami that can 
help with the subpoena for bank rec ords . You m ight also want to ask | | about freezing the 
funds in the account and searches ofl I residence.

The | l a re postponing their visit to Miami until the end of August. They will have a 

better picture of Tvind’ s operation at that time. 

I met with the police today and got a little better understanding of their case and of Tvinds 
operations world wide. 

The ! I is based on embezzlement of $10 Million dolla rs from ~| in unpaid 

taxes. This, however, is just one aspect of the case and from the point of view the easiest 

to prove. More interesti ng to the FBI is his world wide Charities Fraud and money Laundering 
operations. The | ~| believe that non of the money raised by Tvind goes to sup port charities . 

It is all used for profit making ventures and to support the life style of and a small 

group of followers. 

Attached with this fax are some documents that I thought you might like to see but you need not 
keep them - it is just to show you the extent of Tvind holdings. 

The l I seized these documents from a search of former accountant. The 

documents are old , dating from 1992 but you can see that in 1992 his cash holdings were over 
$17 Million dollars (see “A”) and his farm holdi ngs amounted to 81,000 acres (See “B”). 

This same accountant will soon be brought i nto I | md compelled to testily about the 

financial holdings and structuring aspects of operations.

harity flight: Tvind leaders escape to England 


By Pete Westbrook 


Three members of third 
world charity Tvind's top 
brass have disappeared to 
England following charges 
of tax evasion and breach 
of trust against the organi- 
sation. 

OLLOWING the arrest last 
month of four leading 
members of third world 
charity organisation Tvind 


(see Copenhagen Post 2nd 
May), founder and Tvind top 
man Mogens Amdi Petersen 
plus two female Tvind associ- 
ates have moved to unknown 
addresses in England^ 

Mogens Amdi Petersen him- 
self was one of the four charged 
with tax evasion and breach of 
trusM&r allegedly channelling 
charitable donations into pro- 
jects that have Tittle to do with 
Tvind’s stated message or 
objectives’. The two women, 
Marlene Gunst and Ruth Sejero 
Olsen, have not been indicted, 
but both are on the boards of 


some eight Tvind companies. 

Police believe that Tvind has 
misused up to DKK 75 million 
from a so-called humanitarian 
fund for its own ends, and in the 
light of the accusations it is 
hard to avoid jumping to the 
obvious conclusion as to why 
the three have decided now to 
emigrate. 

Tax lawyer Tommy V Chris- 
tiansen, who has been keeping a 
close watch on the case, says: 
Tor me there is no doubt that 
they have fled to England 
specifically to avoid facing 
trial.’ 


Breach of trust is riot an offence 
in the Britain, and legislation 
covering tax fraud is much 
slacker than in Denmark. In 
addition, any extradition pro- 
ceedings are likely to be 
extremely protracted. 

Although police believe they 
have a good case against the 
Tvind organisation, so far they 
have failed to break the codes in 
the 16 computers seized during 
police raids on four Tvind 
offices on 25th April this year. 
As a result they are making no 
attempt at the moment either to 
locate the whereabouts of Amdi 


Petersen or to prevent the three 
remaining accused Tvind lead- 
ers from leaving the country. 

The Tvind organisation 
itself has launched two cases of 
complaint against the police, 
the first protesting the choice 
of accountancy firm Deloitte 
and Touche to investigate 
Tvind’s affairs. The company 
was also involved in a case 
against the charity brought by 
the Education Ministry six 
years ago, which according to 
Tvind spokesman Poul Jor- 
gensen, himself one of the four 
accused, ‘may prejudice them 


against us.’ 

The second complaint con- 
cerns police behaviour and con- 
fiscated items during the raids 
in April, and only after both 
complaints have been dealt with 
can the real case receive a prop- 
er hearing: Did Tvind spend the 
DKK 75 million on non-profit 
charitable activities, or on 
itself? 

What with the Tvind court 
actions, the absconded leaders 
and the problems with breaking 
the codes in the Tvind comput- 
ers, it promises to be a long, 
drawn-out affair.

Click here for more on the constitutional crisis created bv Tvind. 

Although that law ran into constitutional difficulties, most 
Tvind schools no longer receive state support, and many 
have gone bankrupt. Attempts to start up new Tvind 
schools instead have foundered because they cannot prove 
they are independent. So not everything is going Tvind's 
way.

Many take children from other countries - Tvind advertises its 
schools especially heavily in German on the Internet. Most 
schools rely on volunteer teachers, often recruited through 
newspaper ads and the Internet from other countries. 

In 1 998 the Danish newspaper Jyllands Poster) reported a planned 
new Tvind phase of expansion, with 10 new schools and another 
nine in the pipeline. But this has not occurred 

Everybody in Denmark seems to know somebody or have a family 
member who has been a pupil or volunteer teacher at a Tvind 
school. Involvement with Tvind on this level has often split 
families. It has become part of the culture, but none the less 
controversial.

Proposal for new Tvind school rejected from the Copenhagen Post, 
1999 By Cathy Conlon 


Bertil Haarder, former Danish education minister: "I can 
testify that Tvind's tactics are to talk and talk, complain 
and harass, threaten again and again. They are clever 
and they are dangerous. They are a totalitarian Marxist 
organisation with an unholy motive." [quoted in the 
Copenhagen Post, Dec 1 998] 


Tvind financial foundations: 

Faelleseje 

Central Tvind money tank, enriched by the contributions of 
members of the Teachers Group and possibly by other sources of 
income. Members of the Teachers Group do not normally know 
what the money has been used for. This is a private trust. In 
1993 the Danish Auditor-General estimated Tvind's assets in 
Faelleseje, the other trusts and property in Denmark at £30m. 
Much of the money passing through Faelleseje and Estate has

The Institute for International Cooperation

Tvind's US equivalent of its European training institutes for 
'solidarity workers' appears to be The IICD in Massachusetts, 
with a postal address at PO Box 520, Williamstown MA, 
01267. 

Young people are groomed to become solidarity workers in th 
Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, 
Honduras, Nicaragua as well as India and Africa. Again, the 
methods used are the same as in the Travelling High Schools 
in Denmark and Norway, and the CICD in England.

MORE LOCAL INFORMATION ON IICD PLEASE!! 


Tvind in Florida 

Tvind is known to have an administration/apartment block 
several stories high and 'the size of a couple of tennis courts' 
in Miami. Members of the Teachers Group gather here in 
secret from time to time - it is believed to be a major new H( 
for Tvind's extensive US, Central and South American 
programmes. 

Apart from the luxury beachside apartments, there is also said 
to be an expensive ocean going yacht. There have been 
reports for many years of Tvind buying up property, companie 
and assets in the Florida area. 

MORE INFORMATION PLEASE 


Tvind elsewhere in the USA 

As long ago as the early 1980s, Tvind was sending members 
of the teachers group to Virginia, to the Ake Pecha school for 
youngsters with a criminal record. Was this a Tvind money- 
earning school, and does it still exist? 

MORE INFORMATION PLEASE 


Humana - not to be confused with the Humana Foundation 

Do NOT confuse Humana People-to-People, a Tvind organisation, 
with the Humana Foundation, a jolly good charity associated with 
the Humana Healthcare Inc. 

The US National Institute for Literacy, an official US government 
body based in Washington, seems to have done just that in its 
website ( http://www.nifl.gov/Humana.htm L The Humana 
Foundation is listed as a charitable foundation it supports, but the 
link is to the wrong Humana. 

Has the National Institute for Literacy made any donations to 
'Humana' - and if so did the right organisation get the money? 
Tvind Alert has notified the NIFL's webmasters of the error..

Tvind's success has been severely dented in the UK following 
Charity Commission. It no longer raises money through Hum 
clothes collection bins. Nevertheless, it continues to recruit b 
British universities, through advertisements in newspapers an 
and on the Internet. 

Volunteers continue to raise money and distribute leaflets on 
London and other university towns such as Hull, Liverpool, Bir 
Manchester. Tvind has also begun collecting old clothes and 
again, through a commercial company, Planet Aid UK.
